How to Remove Sediment from Hair

Shower and tap water that we normally use to wash or rinse our hair is mainly “hard water.” It contains calcium, iron, magnesium and copper and their sediment clogs up taps and shower nozzles with the passage of time. The speedy flow of water when washing hair or taking a shower brings these sediments to your scalp and hair. They settle down on your scalp and form a layer. Now this sediment layer eats away at your hair’s moisture and makes them dry, dull and stiff, causing hair fall and thinning. It also fades the natural colour of your hair along with the applied hair dyes. Fortunately, simple procedures are available to remove the sediment from your hair. All of them are simple to perform and provide you with the best desired results in the form of sediment free hair.

Things Required:

– Clarifying Shampoo
– Moisturizing Shampoo
– Baking Soda
– Apple Cider Vinegar

    Use Clarifying Shampoo

    Clarifying Shampoo plays vital role in doing away with the sediments as a result of hard water. So replace you general hair shampoo with a clarifying shampoo. You can purchase it from your nearest beauty, medical or grocery stores. Use any good brand that your prefer. However, use it no more than once a week as its frequent use can be counterproductive, stripping your hair and scalp of natural oils and making it more dull and dry.

    Use Moisturizing Shampoo

    Now you might be thinking what to use for the remaining six days of the week. For this purpose, you can use a good quality moisturizing shampoo. It not only nourishes your hair, but maintains proper moisture in your scalp that the sediments destroy.

    Use Apple Cider Vinegar

    At the end of the regular hair wash, rinse your wet hair with one cup of apple cider vinegar as a natural conditioner.  It helps in balancing the pH in your hair and is therefore helpful in breaking down and doing away with sediment in hair.
